Review quote

Donaldson's unrivaled way with words is showcased to perfection as our lyrical rabbit spurts out poem after poem. Lydia Monks' vibrant artwork supports this beautifully, using bright colours and collage and of course glitter. * Library Mice Blog * Most children love rhyming, and even those who don't will enjoy The Rhyming Rabbit... a strong narrative with universal themes. * Observer * A delightful dottiness which is just as captivating [as The Gruffalo]. The addition of glitter-encrusted illustrations by Lydia Monks makes it pretty, too. * Guardian * Glittery and witty * Daily Telegraph *
